Froggy…The Jumping Matching Game!

Froggy…The Jumping Matching Game!

Alice loves to play games and if it’s a game that might too tricky for Holly then we tend to get those ones out when Holly is napping. As it makes everyone a little bit happier.

We were recently sent a new game called Froggy, the jumping colour matching game that is aimed at 5+. Last Saturday with Andy at the rugby and Holly napping, Alice and I sat down for a game together.

Firstly what I really like is that the box is nice and small. This is not only great for storing it, but makes it the perfect game to take away with us on holiday.

Inside the box you will find six frogs, each with a different colour disc on the bottom, the stones and the waterlilies.

The object of the game is to collect the most waterlilies and the winner is the person who has the most waterlilies at the end of the game.

You start off by laying out the seven stones in the middle and place a frog on each stone, with one stone remaining empty. Distribute the waterlilies around the stones, making a pond. Turn over one waterlily.

Taking turns each player chooses one frog and moves it onto the empty stone. Whilst moving the stone the player reveals and announces the colour of that frog, which can be found on the base.

If the frog’s colour matches the colour of the waterlily that is facing up, the player wins the waterlily and places it in front of them. They then turn over another waterlily and have another turn at moving a frog.

The player’s turn continues until they do not match a waterlily.

If the frog’s colour does not match the waterlily that is face up, then the player’s turn is over and its now the turn of the other player.

Froggy is a new game that will be hitting the shops soon.

Alice really enjoyed the game and grasped the concept quickly. It really gets the mind working, trying to remember which coloured frog is where to try and get more than 1 waterlily in a turn.

Disclosure: We were kindly sent our game of Froggy in return for an honest review. All views, photos and opinions are my own.

    I’m looking forward to being able to play these types of games with my DD. I’ll keep a look out for this one.

    What a sweet game! The perfect thing to keep littles entertained after school or at the weekend.

    Oh I really love the sound of this game!! We love any kind of matching game, it’s a simple concept that all of the children can play together. Will look out for it!

  5. Oh my! My kids are 5 now, but this might be still *slightly* out of the realm of what they can do without frustration right now! Sounds like a cool game for when they can develop a bit more concentration. Thanks for making me aware of it! #sharingthebloglove

    This looks like the perfect game to get the early years children interested. I am sure Sebby would love it

    This sounds like a fun game for children, my little two love games. I am so jealous that your Holly naps, my son (who is the same age) hasn’t napped for over a year and I miss him napping so much xx

    Ah, what a lovely sounding game. And so lovely for Alice to have some one on one time with you whilst Holly naps. Sounds great.

    This looks like fun! I’m sure it’s the perfect thing for a rainy day – perfect as a stocking filler this Christmas!
